Title: Snack Bar: Rico's Nachos (from Drive-In Movie Ads)
Description: A color animated film featuring Rico (cheese drip) Nacho (tortilla chip) and Pepe (jalapeno) introducing themselves and persuading viewers to visit the snack bar for refreshments and nachos. Next is footage of a snack bar, popcorn, candy soda and nachos, followed by shots of preparing chips, pouring cheese, and adding jalapenos. And then a final shot of all items together. It ends with the cartoon characters, Pepe crunches on a chip, then the logo. 1970's?
This clip is from a compilation of drive-in intermission films found here on Internet Archives in the Drive-In Movie Ads section. Most are color but there are a few black & whites because of their quality or uniqueness.
PLEASE NOTE: These clips have been modified from the originals. They have been carefully cropped to remove excess black frame while preserving as much of the actual image as possible. I've adjusted the brightness/contrast, and color correction to the best of my ability. Magenta tinted films were especially difficult. These clips are also louder than the originals. Volume has been increased. In some cases the audio track was separated and remixed in an audio editor to enhance the sound. The enhanced audio files are available for upload if requested.
